Yes, your son is not required to take ownership of the timeshare. I recommend speaking with a local attorney on how to do this.
My wife an I r retired living off SS and my pension,timeshare is paid in full but we can’t afford maintenance
answered on Aug 19, 2020
It depends on the contract, but they almost never will even if it is an option for them. Rather, they'll foreclose and take the timeshare back into their inventory should you fall behind on maintenance fees. I recommend reaching out to the timeshare company and offering to deed or return the... Read more »
I entered into a timeshare with Wyndam in 2018, I requested a hardship exit in 2019 and was granted. I was auto paying the mortgage, they stopped it when the hardship was granted and told me it would be sold within 30 days and I would be released from the contract. This was in Sept. 2019. Jan 2020... Read more »

I've helped with a few of these. Here are some ideas to discuss with your attorney. First, your attorney should speak with their legal department. They can usually take care of these things fairly quickly. Second, if the timeshare company continues to drag their feet with this, you can dispute... Read more »
Four months ago a Mexican attorney called me informing me that he could retrieve my money. I submitted all documents of my loss, he submitted my claim to Tribunal Supremo de Justice and the Judge awarded $212,000. The money was placed in a BBVA account with me as beneficiary. Then I received a... Read more »

I agree that this is likely a scam. Please let me know if have questions or would like to chat.

Typically, the remedies in foreclosure are limited to taking the property back. However, I'd recommend reaching out to an attorney. Where is the timeshare located?
I am a senior and would like pro bono advice about the contract as well as review my timeshare documents.

I'd be happy to review this for you. But I'll tell you that very few of these are legit. If they are offering to pay you substantial money for a timeshare in Mexico, it's probably a scam. Don't wire or send any money until you have an attorney review the agreement.
They talked me into selling my timeshare as they had a buyer already for it. I had to send a fee (I never should have done this I know!) of $6,000, then I sent money 2 more times for a total of $22,628 to a title closer at Colorado Title. This is a legitimate business and they stole all of my money... Read more »

I've had run-ins with this same company. I found that it is not a legitimate company and doesn't even exist other than virtually. Please shoot me an email or give me a call if you'd like more information. I'm teaching much of the day today, but will get back to you as soon as possible.

You don't have to. It would probably be a good idea to speak with a timeshare attorney if you're looking for some advice.
answered on Feb 18, 2020
A contract must be signed by the party against whom enforcement is sought. If you never signed the contract, you have an argument that you never agreed to the terms of the offer. The timeshare company, however, may have arguments that you did agree (i.e., making payments after closing). I'd... Read more »
Multiple leases signed over the course of this fiasco. Is there any way to sue for reimbursement for timeshare being exhausted, multiple hotel and resort stays plus the mental pain and suffering from all of this?
answered on Jan 30, 2020
I would need more information to give an answer. I've worked with most timeshare companies, but I'm not entirely sure what happened. It's possible there's a breach of contract claim, but that would largely depend on the agreement and additional facts I don't have. Feel free... Read more »
I am trying to get the SilverLeaf Company to adjust my interest rate when I deployed and they are refusing.
answered on Jan 28, 2020
This probably requires some negotiation, either by your or your attorney. I don't know that they're contractually or legally obligated to do so, but it might be worth having an attorney review the documents you have.
My husband and I were promised a copy of the sales contract for the purchase of a Vacation/ Timeshare located in Maryland. It has been over month and we haven't received our copy yet. We was told that we would receive copy via email. The only email we did receive was actually a reminder the... Read more »

Usually, the timeshare company is required to give you a copy on the day of signing. If they didn't, you may have an argument that your rescission period doesn't start until you receive a copy. It may be worth the time to chat with an attorney to review the documents for you.
We have been living apart for 5 years now and my girlfriend and I purchased the timeshare this last year together.

In many states, property acquired during marriage is part of the marital estate. I recommend that you find a local attorney to review your specific case.
answered on Nov 18, 2019
I don't know if Maryland law requires this, but these transactions are usually governed by the law where the sale takes place. For example, if you purchase a timeshare in Florida, you're not required to take a tour of the resort. However, the state of your residence may dictate that the... Read more »

answered on Oct 30, 2019
I'm sorry that you're in this position. From what you've stated, it sounds like the timeshare company has breached some of their obligations under the contract. I would definitely recommend speaking with an attorney familiar with timeshares. If you and your attorney need any... Read more »

If sold pursuant to foreclosure can they keep entire proceeds even if it exceeds amount owed to Timeshare Company. I called and was told that I lose ownership in this foreclosure.
answered on Oct 14, 2019
This may be true. To work through this, I'd have to review the terms of your purchase agreement.
I was in Akumal, Mexico 2 weeks ago and signed up for a timeshare. I got a great deal and it's not that I can't afford it but after thinking about everything for 2 weeks I'd rather do something else with my money. They mentioned something about not being able to cancel it but there... Read more »

Timeshares in Mexico give you a 50-day rescission period, so you're likely too late to use that route. You may still be able to get out of the contract, but you no longer have the easiest route to a refund/cancellation. When I've helped clients in similar situations, some have mentioned... Read more »

I don't believe it is; I've seen a number of SC deeds and don't remember seeing names of attorneys that prepared them). I'm curious why you have this question. Are you looking to void your purchase? If so, you're likely outside the rescission period, but may have other options.
I am sending a request for deedback to my timeshare resort. i even printed out a form called the quit claim deed for Florida and signed it. Not sure if that is the same form they use, but i know they require a fee of 250 dollars to accept a title transfer. I am hoping that if I write on it the... Read more »

Whether it will hold up in court depends on a number of factors, but I'm guessing that you really don't want to go to court to have to argue that it was a binding agreement. In the alternative, I'd recommending working it out with the resort on the front end to avoid penalties or... Read more »
